About Me

I am an unconventional leader who practices radical problem solving by combining culture change, technology advances, and ‎multidisciplinary knowledge.

The world is a fascinatingly complex place, with opportunities to learn at every turn. Continuous learning and diverse interests are central to everything I do. That includes exploring the latest web technology, slowing things down with vintage camera lenses, and learning the ins and outs of good espresso.

I am passionate about open source technology, with over a million combined downloads of my projects. I publish software under the name devadvance. This includes software like RootCloak, SMS Backup Reader, and more.

I lead the Jersey City Innovation Center at BNY Mellon, where I engage employees, clients, and the startup community to shape how the company approaches its digital transformation. I simultaneously present thought leadership to client CXOs, engage hands-on with engineers, and establish new ways to partner with technology leaders.

Prior to jumping into the working world, I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Science and a Bachelors of Arts degree in Spanish at the University of Pittsburgh.
